I had a wonderful time, the champagne was flowing all night and we were in the perfect spot to get the best pics and videos on the water.

Excellent experience, excellent boat and the excellent crew. The experience measured up to expectations, the boat surpassed expectations and comparable options and the crew definite got it done that night. Definitely choose this tour if you want a top 5 Sydney NYE experience.

Best time of my life with my family 2015 would be the best year....

I wouldn't have wanted to be anywhere else on New Year's eve! The views of the harbour, the fireworks, and the brudge from onboard was second to none. The crew, especially Dan, was friendly and professional. The food was quite good, served to temperature, and plentiful. I say go!!!

Never got any info about which boat we we're suppose to be on, had to call America for further info. Please make sure you tell others in future as it was very stressful!!
Food and drink on the boat was amazing with fab staff.
The boat for the count down was blocked by another boat right in front.

Great cruise - a lifetime experience - just a hassle getting the boat voucher from ATS

I hope someone is reading this. I saw a few 3-Star reviews of the Bella Vista, but was just glad to get a ticket - I wish I had paid more attention. To view the Sydney New Year's Eve celebration is a must, to do it on a boat in the harbor is perfect, but the Belle Vista left much to be desired. There was plenty of mediocre food and drink, but I stopped eating when I watched not one but 4 male employees leave the bathroom without even attempting to wash their hands (one did grab a paper towel on the way out). Then, during the midnight show, 3 employees walked out on an "off limits" area to view the show and blocked the view of at least a dozen of us. I couldn't get a picture of the bridge without them in it. Oh yeah, we ran into another boat - it wasn't too serious, but where did they learn how to drive? I'm glad we saw the show and survived, but I would not go on this boat.

Cruise was nice however overcrowded and unmanageable sometime to cater due to no space in the aisles. Also very little choice for vegetarians. During the fireworks, the crowd is really unmanageable and not enough space to see clearly the harbor bridge. DJ was good. However It is not worth the money spent.

It was the best new years Eve that i have ever had. Sydney being one of the most beautiful city's in the world only added to the experience. But you had the added bonus of seeing the fireworks from the water. What a view it was, the show was second to none.
The staff on board were friendly and i were at hand with food and drink, which seemed to be endless. There was a good choice of food and i am sure there would have been something for everyone.
After a bad 2013 i had at least a memorable day to go out on. I had a fantastic time.
